of politics involved in all this as well, right? >> there is tons of politics. the obama administration has been saying that we really need this power of recess appointments because over the past 2, 3, 4, 5, years, congress has gotten, the republicans in congress have gotten far more partisan. they've gotten much, much more aggressive about preventing confirmation of nlrb appointees and of judicial appointees. and i'm sure that many in the obama administration are really tremendously up set by this decision because it really might seriously block their ability to name the people that they feel under the constitution they have the right to nominate. >> all right, steven greenhouse of the "new york times," thanks so much for joining us. >> nice to be here. >> brown: coming up-- location reports from two newshour correspondents: margaret warner in jerusalem, and ray suarez in davos, switzerland. plus, the advances against islamist rebels in mali; zero waste in san francisco; and shields and brooks. but first, the other news of the day. here's kwame holman. >> holman: president obama chose his
of politics involved in all this as well right? >> there is tons of politics. the obama administration has been saying that we really need this power of recess appointments because over the past 2 3 4 5 years congress has gotten, the republicans in congress have gotten far more partisan. they've gotten much much more aggressive about preventing confirmation of nlrb appointees and of judicial appointees. and i'm sure that many in the obama administration are really tremendously up set by this decision because it really might seriously block their ability to name the people that they feel under the constitution they have the right to nominate. >> all right steven greenhouse of the "new york times," thanks so much for joining us. >> nice to be here. >> brown: coming up-- location reports from two newshour correspondents: margaret warner in jerusalem and ray suarez in davos, switzerland. plus, the advances against islamist rebels in mali; zero waste in san francisco; and shields and brooks. but first, the other news of the day. here's kwame holman. >> holman: president obama chose his long-tim
at these legal pieces. now, the political piece of this, which is really interesting, is that the obama administration has a huge rule of law problem. they have got a rule of law problem moving back, meaning that the bush administration officials that were responsible for the illegality in the torture are not being prosecuted. they have a rule of law problem moving forward, which is they're trying to get these detainees through the eye of a political needle called the military commissions and they're trying to figure out what can we electrothrow on them? >> the process has been constructed around the paul 6 and the court decisions. >> let's make a broader pointing. i don't agree that rule of law has been thrown out the window. this is how it's important to get this right. as imperfect as the process has been under this president and the last one, if we don't get this right, if we don't get a tribunal process right, if we don't get the mechanisms right for assessing guilt and innocence among these people, that the battlefieldin sent i've is not to capture but to kill. that's something th
. so there's the political piece with congress and there's george bush, but here's what the obama administration can and should do. they're in the position to decide whether they are going to appeal this court ruling about conspiracy, right, the nonwar crimes, crimes. >> in which a court vacated a conviction. >> the obama administration should not appeal that conviction -- that decision because what that would do is it would move that whole process forward. it would give them a political footing to say, look, either we are a rule of law presidency or we are not and we have to abide by this. let's shift these trials to civilian courts and take the political heat on these things. we'll still get immigration passed, we'll still get gun control passed, but the state of our democracy, the foundation of our democracy rests on these next few days. >> i interviewed in january a famous detainee at guantanamo because of one of the most supreme court cases bears his name. when we come back, i want to play a little clip to remind people of the human stakes here. you talked about political pro
. [applause] [applause] california was the first in the nation to pass laws to implement president obama's historic political career at. health benefit exchange called cover california will begin next year perverting assurance to nearly 1 million californians. with the rest this decade, california will steadily reduce the number of uninsured. today a call for a special session to do with those issues that must be decided quickly if california is to get the affordable care act started by next january. broader expansion of medi-cal is incredibly complex that will take more time. working out the right relationship of counties will test our ingenuity and not be achieved overnight. given the cost involved, great prudence should guide every step of the way. california lost 1.3 million jobs in the great recession, overcoming back at a faster pace than the national average. the nuance of business and economic development, gove is, one of the good bills -- [laughter] directly assisting more than 5000 companies this past year. one of those who stand some connectors headquartered in korea were tuba
obama himself publicly said that the ryan proposal on medicare was serious and legitimate. the president is playing -- and not the republicans aren't. they play a lot of politics. but the president is playing politics too. when i talked to the president six months ago about medicare, he said the spending trajectory is untenable. and so he knows there needs to be a fix in this area. and what's the shame in all of this is that they can't kind of sit down and work it out, because, you know, if you were the negotiator up at camp david, you'd be able to do it. >> well, one of the problems is they're not at camp david. they are not sitting down together. but the state of the union i think should not be viewed as -- rather the inaugural address should not be viewed as a state of the union speech. this is not the place where he was laying it out. i'm told by white house officials that he put on the table for medicare is still on the table. he wants to negotiate it. and i think paul ryan will be leading the republican side on where they go on this. there are going to be serious negotiations. they
with what president obama is talking about. before we get into all the political labels and the specifics, it's clear the president plans to keep spending and borrowing and putting more debt on our children. so america has a perfect contrast between the directions that they want to go. we know -- >> but we just had an election, senator with two different directions, and america chose. that's what paul ryan said last year. the country will choose what happens in 2013. and they did. so are we past the point of two different visions in choosing? >> i don't think the country has chosen that. in fact, we see almost in the majority of states now where a conservative, bold visionary governors are implementing the ideas that work. and that's what conservatism really is. whether it's cutting taxes or freedom in the workplace or education choice, what we want to do is what we need to do for the american people is show them the successes and which ideas work. we can show where president obama's ideas go. we can look in history, at countries that failed. at europe today. we can look at his home state
't touch. this political negligence suggests that obama has chosen to ignore negative budget projections, credit downgrades, falling revenues and perpetual increases in mandatory spending. instead, the president is teeing up partisan legislative battles with republicans in hopes of -- but as a measurement of the president's seriousness, his second inaugural address can only be seen as a grand failure that missed yet another historic opportunity to call americans together in the name of shared sacrifice. and richard haass, there is another opportunity, which would be the state of the union which i'm sort of banking on. >> traditionally inaugurals are the poetry, and then the state of the union becomes the prose. and the president did not prepare for educate the american people about some of the tough decisions to come, particularly on medicare and medicaid. so the real question going forward for the state of the union is whether he essentially addresses that. and whether he -- because we've still got more than, i think, more than $2 trillion in serious cuts to be made to entitlements over
there is a risk that president obama wastes his political capital in the view of most americans? i mean, the rest of the world is here issing, climate change and carpet emissions in the inaugural speech but not what most americans seem most to care about. it's usually jobs and growth. >> it's difficult for me to analyze that, from a political perspective, but i will say this. i think what will be important here for investors, for taxpayer, for the american people generally, and i think even for folks around the world is how we deal with these issues, the sequences of them and if they see us working on tax reform, getting a bipartisan agreement there, working on reducing spending in a bipartisan way, i think the sequential of that before we get -- maybe get to some other issues might help a lot. >> senator, always good talk to you. i imagine we will talk a lot over the next few months. thanks again. >> thanks so much. >>> and we are keeping an eye on shares of netflix after reading on both the top and bottom line notice fourth quarter, shares on tack for their largest intraday gain on record. we w
it on the people who best can afford it. it worked for president obama, the democrats, like the cbs news political director said is to go for the jugular, to cut the throat to destroy republicans. this is not about achieving a budget or growing jobs. it's about destroying the opposition so they can continue grow the size of the federal government, continue to increase deficits and debt so there's at some point no choice except to continue to raise taxes. >> senator, i'm less interested in this democratic tax budget. i want to ask you a question direct. will the spending sequester the automatic across the board spending cuts sequester go in. if you don't do anything on march 1st as you well know, it goes into place. 1.2 trillion roughly often years, hundred billion this year, to me the public wants lower spending. senator, will they get it? will the gop just say go on ahead dean it? -- ahead and dope it? -- ahead and do it? >> they are hemmed in by the recognize of the democrats again and again. the republicans do not want to cut defense spending. very concerned about what that's going to do. we go
't the first time when they controlled everything. >> yeah, there's a reason that president obama almost never mentioned the words climate change and cap and trade during the the campaign, paul, because they're political losers, they're big tax increases on workers, on union workers, on manufacturing workers, and so, the democrats have avoided that issue now that they've won this election, they've sort of sprung it on people and i don't believe the votes are there in the united states senate or the house to pass anything like the carbon tax, or the democrats are talking an energy tax, like a gasoline tax, kim is right. if they're going to do this, through the regulatory angle and outlaw in that way. >> paul: but then, james, why mention it so prominently, or was this sort after bait and switch for the environmentalists and mention it and in policy terms don't. >> there may be some bait and switch, but this is key. if he doesn't need to get anything through the congress, like the potomac swatch-- >> kim strassel. >> so well. they think that they have a court decision a few years empowers them t
. later, president obama vows action on climate change. what can realistically be done in this political environment? we will ask national journal reporter coral davenport. we will be right back. >> ♪ ♪ [video clip] >> we have created a platform that we call a digital feedback system. a main component of the platform are an integral sensors that turns on when it's all it-- when you swallow it. it collects information about the medicines that you take and your heart rate and body rate and temperature. a wellness matrix. then it communicates via radio with a cell phone that you carry. they process the data and send it back to you as an application that can help you manage your health. >> we are at a point where we have had all these incremental and amazing changes over the last five years. now we are poised to really make some great leaps in complex diseases. our understanding of cancer in the last five years has forced the last 25. the next 10 years will really take us through some amazing advances. >> the latest advances in health technology from the international consumer electronic
to annihilate the party, that takes it to the future not the past. >> well look this is the most political presidency we've ever had, it's the perpetual campaign, as soon as the campaign was over and we started talking about the first serious piece of business the fiscal cliff, the obama administration ran it purely like a political campaign. if you heard the president's state of the union address where the vast majority of americans are worried about economic growth about job creation about these gigantic unprecedented deficits and the debt that our country has, he hardly mentioned that. >> all right, governor. >> in his inaugural dress. >> governor barbour, good to see you. >> thank you norah and charlie. >>> the nation's deep freeze is creating problems. firemen in lawrence massachusetts, had to fight two fires in the subfreezing weather, dealing with frozen hydrants and hose lines and in chicago these are new pictures of the snow as it falls on the windy city this morning. chicago is one of many places expecting a wintry mix today says meteorologist augustyniak
a mountain of debt. america needs real budget reform but president obama insists on playing politics with our country's credit rating. hard 4hardworking american taxps need to balance their budgets. they understand what the president does not. the president bragged in his press conference last week that quotes it's been a busy and productive four years and i expect the same for the next four years." well, it looks like he means that we can count on for your years -- count on four more years of wasteful washington spending. it is time for president obama to finally keep his promise to get america's finances in order. thank you, madam president. i yield the floor, and i suggest the absence of a quorum. the presiding officer: the clerk will call the roll. quorum call: quorum call: quorum call: quorum call: quorum call: quorum call: quorum call: the presiding officer: the senator from iowa. mr. harkin: mr. president, first i ask that proceedings under the quorum call be dispensed with. the presiding officer: without objection. mr. harkin: secondly, i ask unanimous consent that stephanie lynn and
washington bureau chief david corn. his most recent book is called "showdown: the inside story of how obama fought back against boehner, cantor and the tea party." is the showdown referring to any specific incident or just politics in general, mr. corn? >> guest: well, kind of both. the week is a we -- the book is a behind the scenes account of what happened in the white house after the november 2010 election when the republicans and the tea party really knocked barack obama for a loop and took control of the house. and then everything that happened after that. the tax cut deal, the big fights over the budget and the debt ceiling and deficit reduction, also the bin laden raid and what happened in egypt and libya. and so i'm looking at how obama made the decisions he made and took, why he took the actions he took in that very perilous time politically, but i also explain how this is all done in a way to set up the 2012 campaign that we just went through. he had a theory after he took that big hit in 2010, he had a theory that he could make the 2012 race a choice not just between him and mitt
of the road in terms of the political spectrum values. i think he has a very strong record as a patriot of this country. he has proven that. and he's also someone who fits very well with president obama and soon to be secretary of state john kerry. i would hope people would judge him on the whole body of his record as a public servant all the way back when he was a sergeant in the vietnam war. to me i think he would serve with distinction and honor. >> i agree. he made that point in his opening statement which was to judge him on the entirety of his record of his life, which obviously is very exemplary. but do you think the republicans will end up filibustering him? there would be some suggestions that ted cruz is going to put a hold on him. >> i sure hope not. i'm a career person. i serve both republican and democratic administrations. we can't litigate the past over and over again. if you think of what is ahead for the next secretary of defense, how do we get out of afghanistan with honor effectiveness and redeem the valor of our soldiers who have serve there had? how do we face the c
obama almost never mentions the words climate change and cap and trade during the campaign, paul, that's because they are political losers. they are big tax increases on workers, on union workers, on manufacturing workers. so the democrats have avoided that issue now that they have won this election. they have sort of sprung it out on people. i still don't believe the votes are there in the united states senate and the house to pass anything like either the carbon tax or by the way the democrats are also talking about maybe an energy tax, like a gasoline tax. there is no political support there. that's why i think kim is right. if they are going to do this it's going to have to be through the regulatory angle trying to outlaw carbon in that way. >> james, why mention it so prominently or was this sort and switch for the environmentalists. you mention it re tore rickly and say i'm really behind you. in policy terms, you don't give them anything. >> there may be some bait and switch. i think this is the key. if he doesn't neeyd to get anythingt. through the congress, as the potomac watch
senator from massachusetts, elizabeth warren and republican senator john mccain. >>> president obama's second term barely underway. a lot of political buzz about 2016 and the next presidential election and some of the things happening fuelling that buzz. you have hillary clinton's testimony about the terrorist attack in benghazi, libya adding to the speculation about whether or not she is going to run. some consider clint's five hour confrontation as a sign of things to come. and then you have vice president joe biden shaking hands, jogging along the parade route after the inauguration, was he trying to show he is pretty fit enough to be president in four years? joining us to talk about all of this anna navarra and larry, the director for the center for paul acs at the university of virginia. larry, i want to start off with you. a lot of people say we might be seeing a preview of 2016. folks i have talked to say bill clinton making sure there are no barack obamas around the corner, clearing the way for his wife. can you see any signs? can you read the tea leaves? >> i think people ar
for the man that president obama nominated to take his place? outgoing chief of staff, jack lew? the guy is a political operative. how will he be his treasury secretary? steve forbes is here to weigh in on that. sandra: find out why the money market fund industry is trying to keep you from your own money in times of crisis. ♪ sandra: s&p 500 futures closing right now ahead of the weekend. let's head back to mark ses -- sebastion in the pits of the cme. how are things looking?. >> looks like we gave away couple points after the bell. cash is 1500 right now in the s&p. watch those s&p levels. the s&ps need to break the 1500 level. that is the tradable asset. if that breaks 1500 that could lead into breakout next week and lead to some momentum that is something i will watch mopped and tuesday. sandra: thanks so much, mark. david: thanks, mark. shares of radioshack, haven't heard much about that. they are soaring today. nicole is on the floor of nyse to tell us why. >> very interesting. radioshack is a stock beaten down, out of favor, certainly not the hot stock of wall street. what is int
of the obama administration team. we thought we had a program that was viable, limited, politically and legally realistic. one by way the entire intelligence committee have now been reached into. to digress for a second, the major mistake we made, and i include myself in this, was in the early years of the program. the existence of the program, ed to theas not limit t gameng of 8. i think that was a mistake. by 2006 both had been briefed. we thought it was possible. we thought the obama administration could have continued the program in this limited form, at least maintained it as an option. it did not come to pass they told the -- to pass. i do not think any less realistically thought they would stick with that. we have not reviewed the executive order. the tunnel was out of our plane. this is a factual slot in the film. they're saying this is not factually correct. we got a hold of the executive order again. all government will be confined to the techniques in army filled many predict army field manual. -- army field manual. my friends and i have talked about this. i said not that you ask, th
,944. connell: getting close. thank you. president obama getting set to unveil his plan for immigration reform. he will have that later in the day from las vegas. haley barbour joins us now. the politics of this have been really talked about a lot. in fact, we talked about it earlier this hour. let me start with the economics of immigration reform. a number of ceos have told us that they would like to see this in the perspective of, hey, let's get some highly skilled immigrants in here that will help the economy. that will help us to get us turned around. your views are what? >> there is no question if we follow what is good economic policy for america we will have immigration reform. it will allow more skilled and unskilled foreign workers to come into the united states. we need the labor. if you look at the labor participation rate in the united states, it is almost at a record low for the percentage of adults who are actually working or trying to get a job. only about 58%. if you are going to grow your economy, you have to have enough workers and we do not right now. connell: we are behind
asked not to me but to my colleague, barack obama. but if we are serious, i think everything is quite simple. it's not for me to explain to you the intricacies of american politics. but it is absolutely obvious that the constitution stipulates that the second term of the american president is his last term. in that sense, any u.s. president during his second term can take a stronger position and act in a more decisive manner and that is exactly what barack meant. but if we talk about the subject itself, it is extremely difficult and so far we don't see any flexibility. there are no easy solutions in terms of anti-missile defense. there is no flexibility. we have not changed previous positions. the u.s. has one opinion and the russian federation, unfortunately, has a different opinion. these positions are not getting any closer. >> mr. prime minister, thank you very much for joining us. >> thank you. thank you. >>> that was my interview with dmitry medvedev. >>> coming up, what is greece smoking? i'll explain.

of senators talking about immigration. they will lead at the political breakfast tomorrow. next up is mason from jackson, tennessee. are you there? >> i am. >> what did you think of president obama's speech? >> i think it is a good opportunity for all illegal immigrants to try to gain citizenship here instead of working in other people's names and undocumented and not having a right. this is a good opportunity for them to get legal. >> rochelle is from las vegas, an independent college. >> what i find totally ironic is that president obama is at a school in clark county, which school whichspanic rat 40% of all spanish students drop out of high school there. they are the fifth worst school drastic. what president obama, i totally believe in what he is doing, i am very happy, and i think immigrants and americans all, we need education and we need to get reaffirmed with the whole culture of what make us who we are. i do not think our public education system are really doing that for anyone now. my young students, i work with a 70% hispanic rates, 5% of their immigrants coming from this country
doing their job. they are not reporting, they are not curious, they are not holding obama accountable. they are on board. they are part of the agenda advancement team. >> why is the president singling out and blaming fox for a lack of bipartisanship in washington? chief political respondent byron york joins us. is fox guilty? or he doesn't like how fox challenges his policies? >> i think the president thinks he's in for a big fight. if you go back and see when he has brought up fox and when the white house has brought up fox, it's when they are in big fights. october 200 19, big fight over obamacare. annetta dunn starts talking about fox as the wing of the republican party, blaming opposition to obamacare on fox, singling out fox. summer of 2011, big fight over the debt ceiling at the time. jay carney, white house press secretary accuses ed henry, our white house correspondent of spouting republican talking points. and now, to get into this fight over more and more spending. we have had a debt ceiling fight and a fiscal cliff fight, the president's talking about fox again. >> it would
be on the losing sides of this debate given the political atmosphere after this election. >> keep in mind if obama wants to get something done, he would go with a piece meal approach. if it's omni bus, it's ominous. >> you read his article in the "wall street journal." >> voters will vote republican if you give them amnesty. it doesn't work. >> he got 44% of the vote in 2004. >> our job is to make sure reform means we fix the problem that brought us to where we are today. we don't have to do this every years. we have the beginning of a dialogue andy we are a long way from the finish line. >> one thing you need to see in a comprehensive bill. >> mandatory e verify. the open field searches. we are not going down the guessworker program unless we appeal the ban. the jordan commission over 30 years of saying we have to get the preferences. >> the president of the federation for american reform. loretta sanchez is the u.s. congresswoman from california. a democrat. this is just beginning. after sench years of being sem conscious, ariel sharon is showing what is being described as significant brain acti
